Finding God’s Love Down to our Roots

The following article takes a wonderful lesson from a wild fig tree that grows in Echo Caves in South Africa. It’s a wonderful reminder that if we are rooted in God’s love, we will be able to survive the storms of life.  It’s all about finding God’s love for us.

Near Mpumalanga, South Africa, are the marvelous and mysterious Echo Caves. Rediscovered in the last century and turned into a tourist site, these caverns are home to a truly remarkable ecosystem. One of the more amazing species found there is the wild fig tree.

As far as plant life goes, these fig trees appear to be normal run-of-the-mill fruit bushes. What makes them so famous is the unseen: their roots.

Researchers and spelunking scientists have followed the roots of these trees deep into Echo Caves — 400 feet deep, to be precise — the deepest known root system in the world.

This lesson is a good reminder that when we go about finding God’s love, and allow that love to nourish us, we will be able to thrive even in difficult circumstances.
